why they were kept in the dark about a month-long fbi inquiry that ended his tenure at the country's top spy agency. >> this thing just came so fast and so hard, and since then it's been like peeling an onion. every day another peel comes off, and you see a whole new dimension to this. my concern has actually escalated over the last few days. >> and questions also remain about why the president and the white house were not notified about the scandal surrounding petraeus until late last week. republican congressman eric cantor says he was notified back in october after being contacted by an fbi employee concerned that sensitive information may have been compromised. >> once the fbi realized it was investigating the director of the cia or the cia director came one their focus and scope, i believe at that time they had an absolute obligation to tell the president. not to protect david petraeus but to protect the president. >> joining any now is nabokov news chief andrea mitchell. let's start off with there's two lines of investigations we know could take place this week aalone. first,
afternoon to you. >> hi, jamie, the fbi came upon the affair and really by accident during a part of a bigger investigation of suspicious e-mails sent to general petraeus and perhaps others. now that he's stepped down, general petraeus will not testify this upcoming week at house and intelligence committee hearings investigating the benghazi libya attack and some republicans say that sounds a little close to suspicious. petraeus in charge of the cia since september 2011 has previously told lawmakers the attack was in response to an attack over an anti-muslim video and one g.o.p. lawmaker is talking about the timing of petraeus' departure. >> it comes days before he's set to testify before the house intelligence committee and it really begs the question he of what does the fbi know and when did they know it. how long did they sit on that information? i recall that general petraeus briefed the senate about what happened in benghazi. did he have this looming over his head? >> general petraeus, who has been married to his wife holly since 1974, called his extramarital affair, quote, u
, because it now turns out the way the f.b.i. found out about that is because paula broadwell, the mistress, was sending threatening e-mails to another woman, whom she regarded as a threat to her relationship with petraeus. what do you know about that relationship between the other woman and petraeus? >> well, there is an f.b.i. investigation. that is continuing. i read "the post" and "the times" this morning and it's pretty well laid out, i think. i just hate to discuss it except to say there are a number of things that one has to consider, the first of which was there any kind of national security breach? to date, there was not. and the f.b.i. briefed me now. i actually wish we had been briefed a little bit earlier. so that the full intelligence committee, one of the things that i tried to do, chris, is bring both sides together. so my vice chairman chambliss and i share material and work together. that is a very important concept. with neither of us knowing ahead of time, all of this comes as a big shock. and we are very much able to keep things in a classified setting. at least if you k
out new information about why the fbi was actually searching her home in north carolina earlier in the week. what were they looking for, and what do they believe her role is? >> well, what we're hearing now, suzanne, is that david petraeus, at some point earlier on had designated broadwell as his archivist. that is, to be the re pos itory of sort of the documents related to his military career. you can imagine we often think of that in relation to prior presidents who have a library david petraeus was assembling and leaving his documents, and he had broadwell, worry told, doing that for him. pretty interesting, suzanne, because, of course, we heard from surrogates for david petraeus that the relationship ended four months ago, so it's a question as to why would you have continued to have her be the repositivetory for these documents? we saw a five-hour search at broadwell's home. many documents pulled out. we're looking at those pictures now. clearly, the concern of the fbi is and has been are there classified materials there and if there are classified materials, where did she
secretary leon panetta disclosed a dramatic turn in the petraeus case. fbi investigators had uncovered what the pentagon called potentially inappropriate communications between the general and jill kelley whom he and his wife got to know in tampa and were revealing between 20,000 and 30,000 pages of documents including e-mails over two years. officials say some were flirtatious, but the general strongly denies an improper relationship. the fbi discovered the e-mails during its investigation of kelley's e-mails, sparked by her complaints about anonymous threats which turned out to be from paula broadwell. they say they found no wrongdoing by general allen but turned the files over to the pentagon which monday ordered its inspector general to investigate. a social link between the two four-star generals, jill kelley who enjoyed socializing with the powerful in tampa while doing volunteer work for military families. she also gave people the impression she had some kind of state department status which officials say she does not. in fact, last weekend, she called police complaining about media
that an ethically sketchy, politically motivated fbi agent could spark an incendiary federal investigation tunnelling into private lives to help a woman he liked and later blow it up to hurt a president he didn't like. it's also worrisome that the nation's spymaster who had presided in the military where adultery could result in court-martial could not have found a more clandestine manner of talking naughty to his biograph biographer, baby, than a gmail drop box used by terrorists, teenagers and authors. the scandal is a good reminder that although mccain and palin earned total trust, these guys are human beings working under extremely stressful circumstances, and their judgments are not beyond reproach. one of the elements of the story that hasn't been referred to greatly in all of the coverage because of the obvious, that's atop the coverage, is the repeated assignments to iraq and afghanistan. not only among the brass but obviously the deployments, among the troops, seven, eight, nine deployments. it takes -- exacts a crushing burden on families. >> i mean, in the heart of this whole st
that took him down not as a result of him trying to cover up an affair but fbi being alert today look into some level of impropriety. >> yeah. my understanding is that the fbi's investigation into what took place on computers there was not necessarily focused on him. they came by the information by accident. >> hang on. i accident? what do you mean by accident? tip off, mining for something? >> looking for something in particular. don't forget, we got lots of government computers. and like any other workplace, people put their personal information and their personal e-mails on there. maybe they shouldn't but they do. and there's always the potential for compromise, especially in government computers. so we should be shocked if we don't look at our government computers especially those that have confidential information on them and look at them from time to time to make sure they're not being compromised. we get hacking attempts all the time. so we would want the government to look at its own computerers. it's my understanding that this information about general petraeus that they stum

before the house intelligence committee. and it really begs the question of what did the fbi know and when did they know it? how long did they sit on that information? i recall that general petraeus briefed the senate about what happened in benghazi. did he have this looming over his head? what is the realtiming here, liz? that's the real question that i think going forward is so imperative that we get to the bottom of. >> now, as for more on that timing, thursday is the closed door senate hearings on benghazi. petraeus was set to testify. needless to say now he is not. top director acting head of the cia. many are saying he still has to testify here, including ambassador bolted ton through the our network said this is -- there is no way around it that he has to testify. >> you would think he would. >> if they ask him to, even though he is an ordinary citizen now, he would still be required to. >> goes back to that thing about, you just can't have affairs. you know because of the blackmail issue. >> i disagree. you can have an affair. you can't put them on email, all right, people
of the timing of all of this? >> i don't see anything untoward about this. i think the fbi investigated as quickly as they could. i think as soon as they found something out, they talked to him. there was a bit of a delay in notifying the president. but that's something else altogether. you were asking about gen ben ghazi, do you want to talk benghazi? >> yeah. >> you've been on the ground. you know, you know what it's like to be on the ground when your intelligence is no good, i think from a military standpoint, i don't think it made any sense whatsoever to send a quick reaction force, which would neither be quick, nor would it necessarily be able to react to what was on the ground. by that time, anyway, ambassador stevens was dead. >> let's talk about from a personal standpoint. i know that you have known david petraeus and his wife, holly, for about the same length of time that they've known each other. tell me their story. >> david petraeus was a cadet at west point from '71-'75. i taught there from '73-'76. so we overlapped. holly petraeus, met him there. and why? because her fathe
